I started seeing them everywhere on Pinterest and could not resist. So i decided to try them out for our Xmas diner last Saturday.

It’s easy:

The biscuits

200 g of butter
4,5 dl flour
1dl agave syrap
2 tsp ginger
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix butter and flour. Add the syrap, ginger, egg yolk and vanilla and mix. Shape into a bowl and put in the fridge for about 40 min.

Then shape little “round” cookies and bake for about 10 min at 180c.

Once they cooled down, it’s time for the icing.
Basicallly one egg white and powedered sugar (until you reach the rght consistency, not too liquid, not too thick). And spread it on the biscuits, make sure it goes overboard so it looks like the snow men are melting.
Add the little buttons:-)

Put the marshmallows in the oven for a few minutes so it just start melting a bit at the bottom and it is easier to stick them on the biscuits and so the snow mens heads are not too high/straight.
Have fun with drawing their faces with colored sugar pencils.
